Ok so I live in a zoo. Well not so much anymore. Our dog and bird are gone but all our cats are here!
Do you have pets?
Are there any you wouldn't have just because you have kids?
If you do have them, how do they get along with your kids?
My friends always bug me about our pets. We do love animals though. At the moment we have 4 cats and 2 kittens. The kittens are going to a new home next week though. Our dog got out of our fenced yard last year and was never found. =( Our kids still talk about her and we do miss her. Eventually we will get another one. Our bird well... we've decided to not have any more of those until our cats have passed on. We had a canary, I just loved him. I'd wake up every morning to him singing. Then one morning he wasn't singing. Our cats had literally scared him to death. Poor little guy.
Our kids love our cats and they are very good with them too. Our cats are good with the kids. They never claw or bite.. they will swat them without their claws if the kids are getting too annoying. For the most part though they don't mind, they are all very sucky kitties and love the attention. =)
